Jul 29, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Bird

Today we woke up next to the quaint town of Haines – the adventure capital of Southeast Alaska. We got an early start to make the most of our day, packing our lunches and heading out to a day filled with opportunity. After a full day of fly fishing, rafting, cycling, hiking, and exploring town, we returned to the ship for appetizers an evening recap by our multi-talented bartender. We enjoyed views of the majestic peaks along the Lynn Canal through the dining room windows and the bow of the ship as we steamed south towards Stevens Passage.
